AA used to have a rule that says crew could not read anything but AA printed stuff in flight which seemed really dumb. As if the crews should not read for safety sake, then why are AA manuals exempt?

So you just get a bunch of AA stickers and plaster them to the covers of your books and magazines!!
My flights are seldom longer than a couple hours, but it's mostly chit-chat for me (depending on the personality of the person sitting in the other seat). Jepp revisions are a great way to kill some time. I've been known to crack a magazine or a book, or run through the ADF frequencies for some good Musica Mexicana. I've flown with some pretty senior captains who will nod off. I love flying over the southwest on clear days. I'll spend a lot of time just looking out the window!
